The Today show segment was fabulous! Joan Lundon (sp?) interviewed Sleem and Dr. Rosenburg, and called his work a "game changer". It was a bittersweet report for me, as my DH was evaluated at NCI as a candidate for the study in May of 2015. Sadly, he was not admitted into the program and passed away 3 months later. Nevertheless, I could not be happier for Sleen and, rejoice that positive outcomes from this study are on the near horizon!
